Luxury Ride For The Privillaged — cost to own fantastic, nothing ever spoils or breaks. build quality is superb. In 5 years i have changed 2 tires and done the brakes once. every 5k miles change oil for a 100 at dealer. car is quiet from the day i bought it. drives smooth and quiet. handles off road very well. It can carry and tow everything i use it for. This car is legendary for its reliability. Best SUV i ever owned.

Reliable Suv — Great SUV, 3rd row seat, runs great on snow, going up the mountain, great for family outing/long weekend drive, drives like a luxury car, towing package, entertainment system, leather seat, V8 power engine that will give you power when you needs it.

A Comfortable Smooth Ride — Very reliable, great looking, and is a fun car to drive. A perfect sized SUV with lots of cargo space without the feeling of a large SUV. Would recommend this car to anyone and was very pleased with this Lexus model.

Lexus Stands For Quality And More Mb , Audi , Forget It Maybe If U Charge 100k U Will Come Close — reliable does everything that u can ever ask in comfort , better than Q7 in handling and feels firmer in drive and surefooted than that AUDI, does not catch fire like the GL 2207-2008 models very hazzardous please go check , might lose to its handling and driving but 100% more reliable. in 5 years with only one other suv ive owned Mit Montero sport spartan but also reliable this SUV takes the cake in overall everything , engine is what makes it sad with the slow 4.7 v8 with no real gutso. everything else is a wet dream all put into one called a lexus GX 470 never the fastest, but will always make it there no matter what the freakin terrain I LOVE THIS TRUCK thank YOU LEXUS

Reliable Up For Anything Suv — I like the handling and styling as well as the cargo capacity and refined luxury interior. I dislike the gas mileage and rear door. The rear door swings from the left. I wish it were more of a tailgate. I wish this SUV had a 2WD option.

Pros

Easily fits into any garage with its narrow profile, fun to drive, very comfortable ride, great visibility, very safe...

Cons

Although the gas mileage can be viewed as a 'con', it isn't that bad for an SUV

Luxury With Family In Mind... — We have really enjoyed driving this car. It has been a wonderful family car without feeling like another "soccer mom". This car handles beautifully, is fun and easy to drive and parks in any garage or parking spot with ease. I highly recommend this car to any family looking for something with a little more luxury in style, ride and handling.
